The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints about the rooms and the free breakfast.

Although many guests were pleased with their clean and updated rooms, a few travellers had complaints about their lodgings. They reported dated decor, uncomfortable beds (too firm), no in-room mini-fridges or microwaves and Wi-Fi that required reconnecting every 30 minutes. 

The hotel's free breakfast was disappointing to a few reviewers. They described it as sparse, plain and limited, with no hot items.
